Terre Paroxysm is Daniel Menche's continuation in his bringing back the vehement nature of sound. A pure acoustic-electronic recording of storms: wind, ice and rain. The field recordings were captured by Menche and densely mixed and treated in a manner to create a sense of the earth sleeping then cracking open with violent emotion. An air of electronics crackles and slides around the storm recordings in a way that only can be described as acoustic-electro. Terre Paroxysm roars and cries with the organic sound only Menche can evoke.

Gorgeous drones. Track 1 has a similar kind of wide-screen, big-sky, beautiful-yet-melancholy "American" sound that William Basinski's Disintegration Loops has... like listening to remnants of a Copeland symphony after it's echoed through every empty train terminal in the country. Jascha Narveson
